Welcome to James Cruise Ministries.
We’re a ministry for singles, single parents, stepfamilies & marriage
and all that goes along with them...
A place you’ll find encouragement, inspiration and resources. You’ll learn about connecting with single, single parent, stepfamily & marriage ministries, small groups & live upcoming events. We’re also a place for church leaders to learn about what these family types are all about and the resources to minister to them. But mostly, I hope you will learn
not only "how to survive, but thrive" no matter where you are in life.
We’re here to help. Look around our site. Use the resources.
What Biblical Love Is....

We have been sold a bill of goods as it
relates to love. And this is a problem!

Marriage / Family
Incredible as it may seem, we can no longer assume that people in our culture understand what the proper definition of "marriage" and "the family" is. Especially Biblical marriage. Today, marriage and the family are regularly viewed as social conveniences that can be entered into and severed by the marital partners at will. Instead, Scripture teaches that family was God's idea and that marriage is a divine, not merely human, institution.
Difficult times and tragedy are part of life. Everyone's life! We are shaken to our very core. In difficult times we find out who we really are, what we really believe in and how strong our faith in God really is. Tragedy is a defining moment in our lives. It's not the tragic event that's important in our lives. What's important is what we do after that tragedy happens in our lives. Where we look to for our direction and help.
Churches and faith-based organizations are called to be a place of encouragement and support in this world. JAMES CRUISE Ministries is committed to assisting churches and community leaders with ways to minister to the needs of single parents and their children. We can work with your church, organization or a group of churches in your town or area to host one-time single parent events or to work with you, your leadership staff or your leadership volunteers.
